We believe that the photographs speak for themselves as to the stunning beauty and superb condition of this antique American made hallmarked Gorham sterling heavy gauge solid sterling silver footed tray/salver.
The silver hallmarks can clearly be seen within the photographs within this listing. This is a American made sterling silver tray/salver hallmarked as being manufactured by Gorham silversmiths, the tray/salver is hallmarked “STERLING”, and is also hallmarked with a Gorham silversmiths date of manufacture of 1896.
According to widely and publicly available reference materials, the Gorham silversmiths “small shell” hallmark (as seen in the photographs) establishes that this tray/salver was manufactured in 1896.
This footed tray/salver measures approximately 1-1/4” inches tall at its highest point, and is approximately 12-3/4” inches wide at the widest point of the tray/salver.
This heavy gauge solid sterling silver tray/salver weighs a very hefty 800 grams approximately.
Overall this antique tray/salver is in excellent condition commensurate with and in the context of its very old age. There are no splits, no breaks, no gouges, no engraving removal, no monograms, no prior monograms removals, and no repairs.
The surfaces of this 120+ year old antique sterling silver tray/salver exhibit natural age and natural patina.
There is of course age appropriate and very natural minute micro wear from past gentle polishing and from past gentle, responsible, and respectful use. This antique tray/salver does not exhibit any sort of unusual wear or unusual “condition issues” in the context of its very old age.
We can see under very close inspection age appropriate scattered very tiny micro dimples (pin dints) and age appropriate scattered very tiny micro creases/presses upon the “mirror like” and glassy smooth flat center surface area of this tray. In our view, we find that these perfectly age appropriate very tiny micro conditions can only be seen under very close inspection, are not distracting in anyway, and are generally not visible to the naked eye under normal lighting and viewing conditions.
Commensurate with the very old age of this tray/salver, and as is shown within the photographs, there are areas of age appropriate and natural patina exhibited upon the various surfaces of this antique.
